Esther Rose announces new EP and shares cover of Nick Lowe song 'Blue on Blue'

New Orleans indie-country singer-songwriter, Esther Rose, has announced the impending release of a new covers EP called My Favorite Mistakes.

Having recently released a cover of Sheryl Crow song ‘My Favorite Mistake’, Rose has turned her attentions to Nick Lowe and covered his song ‘Blue on Blue’.

Along with Crow and Lowe, Rose will take on a number of iconic figures including Roy Orbison’s song ‘Blue Bayou’ and Hank Williams’ track ‘I Can’t Help It (If I’m Still In Love With You)’.

Recorded direct-to-tape and accentuated with lap steel and fiddle, Rose has released two solo records prior this moment 2017 effort This Time Last Night and 2019’s You Made It This Far.

“When I was starting out on my guitar playing/songwriting path,” Rose says, “I would listen to Hank Williams on my headphones and walk for miles and miles across town and back. Hank is one of the best teachers I’ve had when it comes to writing simply and directly, with humour and sincerity.” 

For now, enjoy her take on ‘Blue on Blue’, below.
